Worth a watch if you are a Sci fi fantasy fan. It's hard to beat, with humanity about to face it's greatest test and extinction in 'War of the Worlds', the original alien invasion story is still one of best! It's much better with this updated version. The characters are a good mix & do really good work. I'm definitely looking forward to Season 2. What do the deadly Aliens want? 😉👽👍
This is a three part British mini series set in Edwardian England. The story follows a journalist and his girlfriend (who live together when this was not seen as proper), as an alien invasion takes place.
Right from the start, the production falls over being rather slow and focusing more on George and Amy and their relationship and issues rather than the alien invasion. They are really quite dull characters stuck in a fairly colourless existence but dealing with 21st century problems. The invasion story does develop but it always seems to take a back seat. At times the pace begins to develop but the anchor gets thrown out pretty quickly and we're back to some non-alien incident affecting George and/or Amy.
I found this miniseries extremely difficult to get through much of the time and needed to resort to the fast forward function on a number of occasions.
